What a handful of those among us who are still capable of using our own noggins, feared would happen, has happened. Never underestimate the power of hate and how it can bring "hate clans" together quicker and more efficiently than those groups wishing peace and harmony for all creatures on Earth. The numbskulls pampering these "hate" bands are probably confident that they will be able to contain these blood-thirsty hordes after they have quenched their thirst drinking Russian blood and before they come for the paymasters .... but just like we are seeing the disaster of such flawed reasoning in the present day Syria and Libya and thereabouts, what do you think will be the outcome of the fiasco in Ukraine?

In a curiously upbeat account, The New York Times reports that Islamic militants have joined with Ukraine’s far-right and neo-Nazi battalions to fight ethnic Russian rebels in eastern Ukraine.

“Another, the Azov group, is openly neo-Nazi, using the ‘Wolf’s Hook’ symbol associated with the [Nazi] SS. Without addressing the issue of the Nazi symbol, the Chechen said he got along well with the nationalists because, like him, they loved their homeland and hated the Russians.”
As casually as Kramer acknowledges the key front-line role of neo-Nazis and white supremacists fighting for the U.S.-backed Kiev regime, his article does mark........
